Like the stuff you use to preserve beautiful piece of furniture, porcelain veneers can bring new life and vibrance to your smile. A veneer is a thin, custom-made piece of porcelain shaped to fit the front of teeth. They are made in a professional dental laboratory and then bonded to teeth to create an attractive and full smile.

Your dentist can use veneers to completely reshape your teeth, and can be an alternative to using a crown in some situations.

Like all of our dental restoration procedures, veneers last many years, but there’s a chance they might need to be re-cemented or replaced due to normal wear.

Why would I need a porcelain veneer?

  • To create a uniform, white, vibrant smile.
  • To fix crooked teeth.
  • To correct misshapen teeth.
  • For severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • For teeth that are too small or large.
  • To fill unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • To replace worn or chipped teeth.

How are porcelain veneers installed?

Veneers usually require two visits to be placed and ready, and the procedure rarely requires anesthesia. Your dentist will take a mold of your teeth and you will choose the colour of the veneer together. Then, the surfaces of the teeth are lightly buffed and shaped to fit the porcelain veneer.

Your second visit is when the veneers are bonded to your teeth. The process starts with a special cleaning process to get a solid and durable bond between teeth and veneer. Then, bonding cement is applied, and finally, we use a special light beam to harden and set the bond.

Before you leave, you will receive care instructions for your new veneer (another chance for us to encourage you to brush, floss, and eat well!) and your dentist will suggest a check up down the road.

I have been a patient of Dr. Song’s for many years; the service he and his staff provides is beyond comparison. They always accommodate my busy schedule, and are centrally located. I highly recommend Metro Dental to all; it’s professional, respectful, and welcoming.
